I need your help. Please help me decide which style to make.(Oh, and I'll also be wearing this on my cruise with my mom in May!)
|This is a picture of my fabric. In real life, it's more silvery and the embroidered "leaves" have more of a blue sheen to them. The under fabric is a pearly silver (I can't remember if it just looks more white in the picture, or if we chose a different shade than what's in this picture.) I will have royal blue accents to bring in the Nevada Blue.|
The first few dresses are from the late 1800's (1890-1900). This is one of my favorite eras.
Now we're getting into a different Era. I love this era, too (1910's) and I think it's appropriate since this year is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. And therein lies one of my dilemmas; there will probably be quite a few Titanic Era dresses this coming year at CoCo. If I want my costume to stand out, should I do that era?
|#5 - (the one on the right) I love that swag in the front, the shear sleeves, and the overall style. It's soft and inviting, but still elegant.|
|#6 - I actually like the sleeves on this one. Reminds me of "butterfly sleeves". I also like the lifted front to reveal the under layer.|
|#7 - (the one on the right) - After some of the others, this one seems a little ho-hum, until I imagine it in my silver fabric as the overlay with the royal blue as the bandeau, and possibly even the underskirt.|
